Near the tourist site of Petra, CPR was performed on a 28-year-old man who collapsed and lost consciousness during a pilgrimage to the grave of Aharon Hakohen.

A group of worshipers went out to pray at the tomb attributed to Aharon Hakohen at Jabal Harun - جبل نبي هارون in South - West Jordan. On way back, one passenger lost consciousness.

Yossi Refaeli, Ichud Hatzala paramedic and ZAKA volunteer who stayed with the group at the hotel, said in a conversation with Behadrey Haredim that at about 1:00 am that night while he was sleeping at the hotel in Petra, he heard shouting outside his room "Hatzala" When he left the room he was told that a group member is not feeling well.

"This is a guy 28 years old who was twitching and lost consciousness, I gave him first aid, while at the same time I called the local medical forces who arrived with three staff members, and I accompanied them to the local hospital."

Refaeli further recalls that he contacted the Israeli Foreign Ministry, who are trying to locate his family, when at the same time they are checking whether he has health insurance so that he can be flown to Israel to receive medical treatment. "I spoke with the Israeli ambassador in Jordan who was updated with details, and is trying to help as much as possible."

"Now I'm staying by his side at the hospital, his condition is defined as hard, and he is sedated and on a respirator, hoping for good news."

The haredi youngster was hospitalized in Ein Musa near Petra.
